UNAIDS Crowdsources Youth HIV/AIDS Strategy
The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) has launched CrowdOutAIDS.org, a crowdsourcing and social media project that engages young people to help develop HIV-related policy, according to a UNAIDS statement. Open to anyone ages 15 to 29, the site will use Facebook, Twitter, Renren and other social media platforms to ask youth to shape a new HIV/AIDS strategy, from conceptualization to final drafting. Globally, about 3,000 people ages 15 to 24 contract HIV each day. UNAIDS is hoping new modes of communication will help build a more effective response against HIV.
